deficit. but it is much healthier for america's economy, much better for the real purchasing power of american consumers, much better for having businesses engage in the business of the future rather than the business of the past, for us to move more balanced trade by increasing exports rather than reducing imports. some of that has to do with the negotiation and enforcement of trade agreements. more of it has to do with choices that we make. especially choices that we make in sectors that one doesn't always think of. there is fast scope, increased tourism in to the united states. if you think about it, tourism is a sector that provides vast opportunities and jobs with those with relatively little skill. not so long ago i had the opportunity to spend some time talking to the ceo of a major hotel chain who noted that of his senior management team, have had not gone to college and many had started working behind the desk in a hotel. our tourism industry which we don't think of as an industry that develops when we are more competitive. similarly close to my heart given where i spent m

the government deficit topped $1 trillion once again. the treasury says the deficit was roughly 7% of gdp and, larry, the nobel peace prize goes to the eu. the nobel committee gave the prize to the european union acknowledging the 27 blocks advancement and a peace and reconciliation and i know a lot of people think this is ridiculous, but when you think about the history there and the fact that these countries 100 years ago and what they're doing is hard, maybe it's a reminder. >> they should have given them to them 70 years ago and this is the wrong time and i'll talk about that with my pal jimmy pathkuke as. >> my only personal view is it's a ridiculous thing so i've asked cnbc contributor jim pathkukas to come back. at this moment in time with the growth of welfare states and socialism and bankruptcy and bailouts i wouldn't give the european union an award of any kind. what this k this nobel peace prize people be possibly thinking? >> given what you just said and the fact, the eu could still break apart and maybe this is like a parting gift when people are on a game show and given a partin

, in 2010 a bipartisan federal commission unveiled the plan to cut the nation's deficit by $4 trillion through a mix of tax increases and spending cuts. the plan was never voted on in congress. do you agree with any or all with what the commission came up with? what other efforts do you think the country needs to take on to cut the country's debt, which now exceeds $16 trillion? >> debt and our deficit are very important issues that we need to tackle and they're a matter of national security. and this is one of the starkest contrasts between congresswoman bono mack and myself. you see, congresswoman bono mack wants to put the deficit and the burden of our debt on the shoulders of our seniors, our middle class and our students. by turning medicare into a private voucher system and charging our seniors $6,000 a year for their health care costs on average, by cutting pell grants and stafford loans who rely on those for their college education and she's voted to increase taxes on the middle class through the ryan plan. all of this in order to keep tax breaks for multi-millionaires and tax

[cheers and applause] now, there were a couple of place where is we agreed. we agreed, for instance, that we would take this country in very different directions. and he points out -- well, actually it was the vice president that blurted out the truth that they're planning on raising the taxes with $2 trillion. actually it's more like $3 trillion. there's no secret that the spending and the interest that they amassed by virtue of their spending and it's going to cause them to raise taxes on the middle-class. i make this commitment to you, under no

the argument that the 16 trillion-dollar deficit -- debt, rather, is very much part of the obama administration's responsibility because of so much he added to it it substance for mr. romney having criticized joe biden for an absence of style last night, shep. >> shepard: carl cammeron live lancaster, ohio. certain states seem to matter more in this election than others, don't they? in every election the battleground or swing state which could go republic or democrat could matter the most. this year handful of states states including nevada and quarter. molly line with more on this live from boston. >> hi, shep. we turned from the states where they have been spending a lot of time. nevada glitz and glamour of the las vegas strip. real estate tough bed. highest unemployment rate in the nation at 12.1%. difficult place to convince people that things are going to get better. 6 electoral votes are at stake. real estate agent says the housing market has been disseminated. >> because of, you know, mitt romney and knowing how to manage money and obama being for the people, it's hard to make a decision
